Tania Bruguera

Artist Talk

17 August 2019
4.30–5.30pm

For over 25 years, artist Tania Bruguera has created socially-engaged performances and installations that examine the nature and effect of political power structures.

Join Bruguera for this artist talk where she will discuss her research, as well as some of her many short-term and long-term projects.

Guest Info
  • Tania Bruguera

    Bruguera’s research focuses on ways in which art can be applied to everyday political life; on the transformation of social affect into political effectiveness. Her long-term projects are intensive interventions on the institutional structure of collective memory, education, and politics. Her works often expose the social effects of political forces and present global issues of power, migration, censorship and repression through participatory works that turn “viewers” into “citizens.”

    By creating proposals and aesthetic models for others to use and adapt, she defines herself as an initiator rather than an author, and often collaborates with multiple institutions as well as many individuals so that the full realisation of her artwork occurs when others adopt and perpetuate it.
